In seventh grade English Language Arts, students will be working on the writing process through Writers' Workshop. The majority of writing will be completed in school as we use Writer's Workshop, and Lucy Calkins programs to help students write engaging, thoughtful, and coherent pieces. Throughout the year, students will be perfecting their grammar and standard English Conventions skills using daily warm-ups. It is crucial that everyone comes prepared to class with all of their materials and a positive attitude so they may gain the most out of each lesson!
Our reading class this year will be focused on Reading Workshop. This approach requires students to choose books from different genres and to meet weekly reading goals. We will also cover book studies including The Outsiders, The Giver, as well as a historical fiction novel. Mini-lessons will teach reading strategies and skills.
